It was nice to see him come back and play. But, It scared the crap out of me watching him... Thinking, when will it happen again.. Poor guy.

Point was the GM seems to really like him.. because he hits something every 3 seconds on the ice

You have to not have the puck and awful lot to basically double the next person in the amount of hits you throw. i would want my GM to understand stuff like that and to pay attention to the actual on ice results when it comes to shots and goals while a player is out there.

physical players are fine, just value a hit properly in context to a shot or goal

But the GM and coach got the team to the ECF. They believe they will improve on this this coming year. Not sure you can ignore hard realities.

I agree. Loved his playoff heroics last year. But was afraid he was going to be hurt on every shift.

When he scored the series winning goal against Boston in first round, I hoped he would hang them up right then.

I think he knew what was coming as his kids did not come to Ottawa to start new school year.

Speaking of hard realities Spazzo

How did the respective farm teams fare...

2016-2017:
Marlies lose 5 key players to the Leafs. Players who become the greatest rookie class the NHL has ever seen.

The AHL Standings...

Marlies 89 points in 76 Games .586
(2nd in North, 1 point out of first)

Binghampton 60 points in 76 Games .356
(last in north, for second year in a row)

Just in case you want to make excuses, the top 20 players in terms of games played between the 2 rosters were an average age less than 6 months apart.

So... Despite losing the greatest rookie crop ever, the Marlies >>>>>>> Sens farm teams.

Add in the fact that the Sens were (are?) the oldest team in the league and have 2 untradeable contracts...

and this franchise didn't win a cup last year or ever.

That is some tough reality

What hard realities?

You think because the gm said they'll be even better that it's reality?
